Sorry to bump this up.
I wonder where and when I will be able to buy a Full Version Family Pack In French.

And, the third user, will probably change to my aunt so... don't worry about sharing lol.

I'd expect all the Family Packs to be the upgrade version, not full.

It's been indicated that Family Packs will occur in Europe as well, so assumably the French version will be out there around the release date. Supposedly the family packs are only going to be for a limited time, so I'd keep my eyes peeled in October and try not to miss them when they do come.

Regardless of if the Family Pack has one or three keys, there's only one install media to be used to install Win7 on all three computers. Not wanting to tell you what you should or shouldn't do, I'm just saying I would never A) sell an OS without giving the install media (DVD), or B) buy an OS without getting the install media.

Just to point out...You are given 3 keys. One for each of the 3 computers you plan to upgrade. It doesn't have to be family members, they don't have to live with you. There is no restrictions on how you use the 3 keys as long as you update from a previous version. And only install it on 3 computers.

Microsoft has now confirmed a number of details about this packaging. The Windows 7 Family Pack provides a Setup disc and three product keys for Windows 7 Home Premium, providing you with the ability to legally install the product on three PCs.
No where does it say those computers have to be owned by you or your family members. Even if that was the case, there is no way Microsoft could enforce that.

Quiet true,
But money wise it would be worth it.
just fresh install the old OS, then upgrade to seven that way all the crap that tends to leach on is gone.
